Personal Digital Archiving 2011
Thursday, February 24 & Friday, February 25, 2011

San Francisco, CA 94118
From family photographs and personal papers to health and financial information, vital personal records are becoming digital. Creation and capture of digital information has become a part of the daily routine for hundreds of millions of people. But what are the long-term prospects for this data?
The combination of new capture devices (more than 1 billion camera phones will be sold in 2010) and new types of media are reshaping both our personal and collective memories. Personal collections are growing in size and complexity. As these collections spread across different media (including film and paper!), we are redrawing the lines between personal and professional data, and between published and unpublished information.
For individuals, institutions, investors, entrepreneurs, and funding agencies thinking about how best to address these issues, Personal Digital Archiving 2011 will clarify the technical, social, economic questions around personal archiving.
This conference is the second in a series; past attendees included representatives from UC Berkeley, Stanford, UNC, UT Austin, the University of Illinois, and Oxford University; Microsoft, Yahoo (Labs, and Flickr), Google, and Amazon (S3); the Smithsonian, the Magnes Museum; Xerox PARC; the Center for Home Movies, the California Digital Library, Family Search, and the Coalition for Networked Information. Support was provided by the Internet Archive, the Bassetti Foundation, and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.
